  1. What happened to the WEED documentaries? Youtube needs to bit the dust and allow it. I began my fight for the legalization of medical cannabis in Texas the day after the first WEED documentary was on. Who do I contact? Why are all of the WEED documentaries going to this address with the message "Sorry, this content is age-restricted." I am 63 and using the cannabis oil which has my Epileptic Seizures Controlled!!!!

  2. Please don't paint cannabis as "the miracle Plant" , cannabis is not for everyone! people with mental disorders don't do good on this plant, so please don't say only the good side, show the bad side as well as the good side, its not until you see it in your close ones, then you realize it is not all good as claimed

  3. Hmm… The white matter that shows up more in teens because of Medicinal Cannabis, I wonder if the same is true for teens on antidepressants? Antidepressants have so many side effects and cautions, way more than medicinal cannabis does. I started smoking Medicinal Cannabis at the age of 12. I was self medicating. I have a really high I.Q. too. My friends were very intelligent as well. So I don't believe this hurt us one bit. And there are so many millionaires and billionaires that started at a young age as well. As with any medicine you shouldn't abuse it. There is no sense in smoking a whole joint for oneself. Two or three hours and that should do you well for three to four hours. There are people following in the footsteps of others who think they should smoke a whole joint for just their self, because they see others doing it. That's where it is bad. There's no reason ever to smoke that much. You're hurting yourself by over medicating. It's wasteful too. I actually smoked myself straight at my first concert I went too. It was an Aerosmith Concert (A Rock In A Hard Place; Reunion Arena Dallas, Texas). Between 5 people we had rolled up a quarter ounce joint and smoked it all. My friend passed out, but me and the others finished it. And at one point I had become straight, it was a trip. And then I got stoned again. I never ever smoked that much ever again. It was a cool experience, but I'll never do that again. And this was Skunk strain at that time, the best you could get. Steven Tyler back then was so wasted, that he had the words post to the stage. He did a great job! Lost my voice for several days, and hearing for a day. I could hear, just not real well.

    Anyways, I live in Texas and Texas has not legalized Medicinal Cannabis. It terrible because I live in a lot of pain and medicinal cannabis is what allows me to be out of bed for at least 4-6 hours a day. The Neurosurgeon botched the back surgery I never really needed. It was a bulging disc that would have repaired itself and he knew this and he pretty much new what to say and do to convince me I needed surgery. So unfortunately I believed him and didn't get a second opinion if I had I would have been all right. He had high risk Insurance even though I had a great lawsuit until the lawyer found out that he had high risk insurance and they backed out, because they would have dragged it out where nothing good would have came out of it. So if you live in Arlington Texas stay away from Doctor Frederick Todd II. He has messed up lots of people. I know of people who have been in terrible motorcycle accidents car accidents messed up their whole back and their back to life.medicinal cannabis is the only thing that takes away the burning and crushing feeling in my back and legs and relieves that for 4 to 6 hours. So if Texas doesn't legalize medicinal cannabis soon I'm going to move to a state where it is legal. it should be totally legalized in every state. By the way, Alcohol is the true gateway drug.

  4. politicians throughout the western world should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. I have a spinal injury and have been using cannabis for 6 days. My pain levels, muscle cramps, and nerve pain have all been GREATLY reduced. I have also not slept this good since high school, I am waking up early(before my alarm) and more rested than I have felt in years.

  5. Thank you for posting this very important series. My state legalized medical MJ, but there is still so much unwarranted stigma. As a medical profession and parent of 2 medical professions, the medical community is absolutely FOR legalizing MMJ. Now petitions are being passed around to legalize cannabis for recreational use. I have shared this video series many times to educate people about the extraordinary benefits of MJ as MEDICINE. Thanks, Dr. Gupta for an incredible documentary about cannabis!

  6. But what some people do not realize is that CBD only, which does not help with pain or neurological pains. It does have its uses, but as our bodies are made of an Endocannabinoid system, and god put this plant on earth to be utilized for humans and animals for this reason. Not for the government and pharmaceutical companies to breakdown and profit off of which only utilizes some of the plants properties and hence does not create the same effectiveness to help in the same way as using the entire plant, weather male or female plants are utilized. United States Patent_ 6630507. Not even looking into the facts of the true history’s research and studies from United States and countless other countries that have been performed since the 1930’s, plus the 5,000 years prior to this. All the writings by countless practitioners from those days are not practical. But the Bible is all facts and truth. I must be drug tested to work and pay the taxes for the salaries of these officials and the ones in our country that cannot work or don't work (Social Security, welfare, unemployment, etc.) and none of these recipients have to take an drug test. How does this system work? United States Patent_6630507.

  7. People who aren’t daily smokers aren’t likely to drive, and are likely to smoke for the first time somewhere they’re going to stay at for awhile (or at home).

  8. I was addicted to pills for nearly a decade. At the age of 43 a friend of mine suggested I try cannabis. It changed my life. I stopped using oxy, and now I take a supplement that is 20mg cbd, 5mg thc. I have no pain! Hallelujah

  9. Epidilox costs something like $32K or something like. Buy the CBD from Charlotte's Web (named after Charlotte Figge) and it's $300 for more than a month supply. Epidilox also has a long list of side effects–a few severe. How does this make any sense (cents). (Don't work for them.)

  10. This plant saved my life. I suffered from chronic pain and depression from having a brother die of a heroin overdose. The same week, I tore my acl, mcl, and a tendon in my knee. A friend recommended medical marijuana, so I picked up some edibles which contained 20mg cbd, 10mg thc. I cut the pieces into a 25% dose, take twice a day. Once at 10am, once at 4pm. No pain, no depression. Saved my life

  11. Marijuana makes you dumb, lazy and submissive that's why the government is legalizing it. The best medicinal marijuana has very little thc. These dopers who grow dope aren't interested in medicinal marijuana because they're dopes who just want to get high. Only dopes smoke dope and if you don't like this comment it's because you're a dope. Stupid ass fucken drug addict dopers. If you smoke dope everyday then you're a drug addicted dope. Stupid fucken dopes

  12. Marijuana is a horrible drug my house gets clean, I don’t feel anxiety, music sounds better, food tastes delicious, I smile laugh and am generally in a good mood. It’s just horrible.

  13. I have been smoking since age 12. I am now 62 and have never stopped! I still have my high school body and still remember all the words to the songs I sing and rap when I perform! just saying!

  14. I'm new to the medical Marijuana forum. I'm constantly dealing with my own pain, nothing else I've tried has worked. Will continue to gain knowledge as to the medical aspect. Please continue to keep advancing and spreading the knowledge about this medical breakthrough as well as the safety surrounding the issue based on what it's used for in the medical field.

  15. Prescription marijuana, why grow your own cannabis and vape it. Let’s add chemicals and charge out the ass at Walgreens why turn it into a prescription! That’s the American way!! I have personally seen how well cannabis helps those with addictions to alcohol or opiates, ptsd, seizures, migraines, cramps, the list goes on…. The only reason cannabis isn’t legal is because of the lobbyists wanting only the wealthy big pharmaceutical, tobbaco and alcohol to get rich, and f the poor… Crazy, what a joke!! They are killing people with opiates, and blocking a medicine that can help, and you can’t die from it… How the hell can our government block a dried flower that helps so many? It’s crazy to me that we supposedly put a man on the moon or can land rockets on a platform floating in the ocean, but we can’t figure out as a nation that cannabis is in fact a medicine and a miracle! Or have our government/politicians known about it? They realize that big pharmaceutical, alcohol, and big tobacco is in trouble if they legalize it nationwide. Why do you think they won’t let it be studied, it’s a miracle plant! They don’t care about the long term effects for us! Marijuana can not kill you! Look at opiates, alcohol, and cigarettes they are killing thousands of people a month. It’s all bullshit… Usually I don’t like CNN but this article killed it. Thanks Gupta for what you’re doing. Try cannabis in your life, it’s crazy how much it can help people. It helped me get off opiates and my life back! Plus I worked in a dispensary for a while, I saw everyday how it helped people in theirs. Marijuana isn’t a drug like heroin or cocaine, it really is a medicine.
